Team USA Redux

USA v. Uruguay: LBJ

While I was busy brushing up on my Mandarin, some guy named Redd helped the USA remain perfect at the FIBA Tournament of the Americas. Well, "helped" might be a little generous, given Redd had his two quietest games of the tournament. On Wednesday the USA downed Uruguay 118-78. Redd scored 9 points (3-6 fg, 2-4 3fg, 1-1 ft) along with a rebound, 2 assists and 2 steals (box score). LeBron James had 26 points (on 11/11 from the field) in just 14 minutes, which is downright silly.

USA v. Argentina Highlights

Then last night the USA faced their biggest test of the tournament so far, squeezing by Argentina 91-76. Redd played just 13 minutes, scoring 3 points (1/4 fg, 1/3 3 fg) with a rebound and a steal (box score), but Kobe Bryant scored 27 to pace the States. Boeder Bucks has been all over Team USA's performances, so head over there for more.
